Experience the wild beauty of the northern and central British Columbia coast through the eyes of 50 Canadian artists, including Robert Bateman, Carol Evans and Roy Henry Vickers.

An expedition of artists travelled to spectacular and remote areas to depict the rich biodiversity and ecological elements of the forest, intertidal, and ocean zones, along with the people, flora and fauna that have lived there for thousands of years. The resulting artworks, blended with essays by experts in their field, and poetry, portray the splendour of the region. The book includes a foreword by David Suzuki.

The artists' goal is to bring attention to the dramatic beauty and ecological diversity of the coastal wilderness that will be at risk if tankers are permitted to ship tar-sands oil through narrow and dangerous channels.

They hope to raise awareness of the coast's wild and diverse marine and terrestrial environment, and support for its conservation.
